Hairstylist Jawara is one of the most in-demand stylists in fashion today thanks to his creativity, speed, and expertise with ALL hair types. We discuss why the latter is still (!) a rarity in fashion, and how the industry can fix the problem. Plus, Jawara discusses #assistantlife, working with frequent collaborator Solange, the secret sauce in his bag, and his recipe for the sexiest cologne on earth. Before that: the business of being a beauty influencer, the Deciem kerfuffle, and beauty companies faking customer reviews.
